Stunning and Exotic Bike Routes in Nepal
Annapurna Circuit Mountain Biking

Tour Description: Guided

This extraordinary trip takes you to some of the most stunning and exotic biking routes in Nepal. This Annapurna Circuit Mountain Biking tour passes through a variety of different landscapes, from lush sub-tropical rainforests, deep valleys and cultivated fields, to wooded alpine and high deserts. We visit an array of villages, meeting the local hill tribes and enjoying frequent spectacular views of imposing Himalayan peaks, including the Annapurnas and Manaslu. We reach the lowland villages, dense oak forests, deep gorges and lovely isolated hamlets to the lap of the mighty high mountains and the Tilicho lake - one of the highest altitude fresh water lakes. To top it all, the crossing of the Thorung La pass 17,769 feet (5,416 m) is a challenging ascent, surrounded by some of the most magnificent mountain views in the world.

The mountain biking trip begins after a day of sight-seeing in Kathmandu. First we reach Besi Sahar via ground transportation, from where we begin biking anti-clockwise around the Annapurna massif. The trail climbs gradually, allowing us to acclimatize to the high altitude, as we travel along the Marsyangdi Valley. After the crossing of the Thorong La, we descend to Muktinath, one of the most important Hindu pilgrimage sites. We descend down the valley reaching the Kali Gandaki River, with its panoramic views of Machapuchare (the "Fishtail" peak) and Tatopani. We finally return to Kathmandu via private transportation to celebrate our achievement.

With demanding rugged terrain and technical tracks, this trip is designed for the more experienced riders, and is not recommended for beginners. It will be grueling, but definitely worth every drop of sweat.
